Do you have ssh access to your server? If so, use 'mysqldump' to get the data and 'gzip' to compress. You can then move the file into a web or ftp accessible directory and download it to your local computer.

phpmyadmin is not very good at database backups. I use SSH and the only problems I have is when I mis-type something. :)

I use mysqldumper (http://www.mysqldumper.de/en/), free and very easy, you don't need ssh access.
